The DJI Ryze tello is one of the best selfie drones you can get for under $100 in 2019, if not THE best.

So it's obvious why people already expect a DJI Tello 2 version that should improve on the existing situation, even though it might add a bit to the price.

There is clearly a big gap between the Tello and the Spark that DJI hasn't tried to fill yet, even though there are many requests.

In this article I will cover all the rumors and speculate on how a new Tello 2 would be built.

Will the Tello 2 have GPS?

The second version of the original Tello might just as well keep the same stability hardware and software, with the optical flow camera underneath.

The only reason why it would need GPS is if it would have a considerably bigger range, so that a feature like return to home, circle around and waypoints would make sense.

If the drone will keep the same 2.4 ghz connection, then it will make no difference whatsoever.

However they might just as well implement some 5g technology on the drone that will allow for a few houndred meters of range, up to 1km.

DJI Rze Tello 2 Price and specs

The tello 2 should definetely be under the price of $200 for it to be marketed effectively.

Here I put some of the specs the drone might have, but there's a high chance many of them won't be available.

It will still be a drone targeted toward beginners with a low budget.

I really doubt it would have a stabilized gimbal like the DJI spark, but maybe they can increase the camera resolution.

Overall, I think they can actually make a long range improved Tello with GPS for under $200 that can also record in 1080p.

That's something I definetely would buy.

Tello 2 with a 1080p camera?

The tello is already quite an incredbily good camera drone for the price, especially when it comes to taking pictures.

The second version of the Ryze Tello is certain to have at least the same performance.

But how could they make it better without investing too much money in the build itself.

Even though I would like it to record in 1080p,  it might be hard to fit a good camera at that resolution while also stabilizing it.

Maybe improving the video sensor a bit would help.

The most important change is definitely going to be the addition of a micro SD card slot or even internal Memory like the Mavic 2 has.

This will eliminate one of the biggest drawbacks of this drone. That is, the video signal interference, as it's only transmitted through wifi, not saved directly on a micro SD card.

 

A very interesting adition to the drone would definitely be a camera that can change angle from the controller itself.

Transmitter

The transmitter you see above is a bluetooth one that you can use with the current version of the TELLO.

It looks cool and is very useful, but bluetooth range is not enough for a suposed GPS version of the drone.

a good 5G Transmitter with antennas like DJI drones are using might be what's required. It should have simple controls and I expect a flight range of maximum 1km, but maybe just a few houndred meters.

Even so, it would be enough.

Tello 2 flight functions

This new drone, if it will come with GPS it will certanly have the standard GPS functions included:

  • circle around me (probably around the controller)
  • waypoints
  • auto return to home
    • by button press
    • low battery
    • loss of signal

Other functions like smart follow and subject detection might just be overkill and would add to the price without any need.

I would frankly prefer having brushless motors instead.

PROS
  • maybe 1080p video
  • maybe gps
  • bigger range (a must)
  • maybe brushless motors
  • definitely a micro SD card reader
CONS
  • more expensive package
  • not so beginner friendly

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:

how-to-make-money-with-drones

1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

types of drones

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  1.  
  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.

 

How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of DronesGator.com and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.

  1. I have the Tello RYZE drone. My phone is a Motorla E4 Android. This phone is not compatible for the drone. Are there any Motorla Android phones compatible for drone?

  2. Does anyone know estimated release date for tello 2?

  3. alquem saber a pre estreia desse tello 2

  4. For tello 2, i think its enough if they upgrade the camera to 1080p, and make it a foldable drone. So you’ll have a usable video and you can squeeze it in your pocket.

  5. It would be a great drone now if it had a SD card but without that you can never get good video because the wifi breaks up.

  6. Tello is a good mini drone but I want to improve a type of Brussless motor and with gps and have a controller. Long flight time
